Global Conference

Global Conference – Copenhagen 2017

By April 30, 2017 No Comments

NIMS Global Conference was a huge success last year! A three-day conference with speakers from diverse companies and an IBM Design Thinking Workshop that helped NIMS members transform thoughts into words about the vision and mission of NIMS.

The conference on the first day, took place in central Copenhagen at NIMS partner Accenture. A total of five top universities with dedicated students joined to hear inspiring keynote speakers from Microsoft, UNOPS, Tesla, Accenture and Copenhagen Solutions Lab within the topic of “Unleashing the Potential of Technology in Times of Global Change”. The speakers brought meaningful speeches and important key take-aways on the influence that technology has on society and business. In the evening we all met up for dinner and drinks to get a chance to socialize more.

The second day was a full day of networking and social activities. First half of the day consisted of an envisioning of NIMS, its purpose and future direction. The second half of the day, the Copenhagen team had arranged for some fun social activities, which among others consisted of a scavenger hunt around the inner city of Copenhagen. Following, a nice dinner and sightseeing.

The following day, we met at Copenhagen Business School to learn about Design Thinking and its innovative process! Our three instructors from IBM created an interactive session of creativity, fun and determination that helped work together and better our perception of NIMS.

We hope that as many of you are available to join for this year’s Global Conference, taking place in Vienna.
